The Front Page

New York: Covici-Friede, 1928. First Edition.

Hecht and MacArthur's most important book, and easily the rarest in jacket. A drama that is the basis for three key films: "The Front Page" in 1931 with Adolphe Menjou and Pat O'Brien, "The Front Page" in 1974 with Jack Lemmon and Walter Matthau, and most importantly of all, the classic screwball comedy "His Girl Friday," with Cary Grant and Rosalind Russell in 1940.

A cornerstone film source title by two of the greatest screenwriters of Hollywood's golden era.

Near Fine in a Near Fine example of the rare dust jacket. In a custom quarter-leather clamshell box.
